9:02am
washout. >> back to you. our top story this morning, the q'uran-burning controversy is getting more and more complicated as the saturday event draws closer and that confusion, the pastor jones called off the burning. he's not sure this morning. >> a deal may be fall a part and may never have existed, as a matter of fact. jones said he was lied to and may move ahead with his plan. doug lou sueder is live with the latest. >> reporter: was there ever a deal, there is a great deal of confusion and at this point, we don't know what this florida pastor is going to do. the sentiments of this florida church are still clear. what will happen next is not. the pastor terry jones said he's confused and in his words, devastated. >> i was lied to. that is not what we were told. >> reporter: he agreed to cancel his planned q'uran
9:03am
burning tomorrow after pressure. even robert gates asked him to back off to protect u.s. soldiers overseas and a florida imam stepped forward to broker a deal. according to jones, the imam behind the planned mosque near ground zero in new york city agreed to move it and the florida imam stood by jones earlier in the day when the deal was announceed. >> the iman has agreed to move the mosque. we have agreed to cancel our event on saturday. >> reporter: but then it began to fall a part. the imam behind the new york mosque said there was no deal, putting out this statement: we're not going to toy with our religion or any other nor are we going barter. we're here to extend our hands and build peace and harmony and the florida iman said nothing was final. >> that's correct. until we fly to new york and meet with the imam and his leadership, to make that final decision, it's not my decision.
9:04am
>> and that is not true. that is absolutely -- i have several witnesses that were there in the room, we made it very clear. he repeated it back that the i man there in new york -- iman there in new york said they would move the mosque. >> reporter: for now, the burning is on hold or is it? we'll have to wait on to see what he appears to do. they have just made matters worse. >> thank you. and to a developing story from california. it's a natural gas explosion and we reported on those before you go not like this and that irk initial blast set off fire after fire in the neighborhood incinerating dozens of homes in hours and that happened in san bruno south of france. the death toll has gone up in this disaster, we learned. sherri ly has the latest. this is an extraordinary story,

9:32am

9:35am
hermine, moving right towards the mid-atlantic and it's expected to arrive on our doorstep into sunday and also, it's associated with the frontal system and we'll talk about that as well. as far as the skies are concerned, things are nice outside and fairly clear as well. we don't have like a lot going on across the region as far as that goes and not all bad. not all bad at all and so, let's see. trying to get the maps to move here. they don't want it moved and talk about the temperatures, they're not doing badly either and in the 60s everywhere in the area. 65 at baltimore as well and 61 degrees at gaithersburg. as we move ahead, this is a look at what we're talking about. farley clear skies, as i said and when we look at what is happening with that frontal system moving in, we're going to see a difference. this is tropical depression igor weakening out and could gape strength by saturday and not a lot is happening with it
9:36am
and that could be a tropical storm by the time we move through into the next 24 hours or so and bringing it back here at home, things are calmer and this is going to interact and expecting rain in some overnight hours of saturday and that could linger into the first part of sunday and the weekend is not a washout and we're going to see yet stick around. the redskins games, we'll have some partly cloudy skies, temperatures at 73 degrees and kickoff at 8:20 and expect that wet weather the first part of the day and we'll look at the five-day forecast for you quickly and here we go. some rain by the time sunday rolls around. and let's answer our ask allison question this week. we have had a few weeks off and glad to get back into this and an anonymous viewer writes as a
9:37am
single bomb of two little girls, i sometimes feel that i am a little overprotective. my question is: my ex at times introduces his male friends to our daughters as uncle so and so and uncle john, uncle steve. is it appropriate for him to do so? she said i talk to my daughters of good things and bad things. it's only so much i can do if the protection doesn't come from both parents. i often think if my daughters feel comfortable with daddy's friends and something happens while they're around that person, they would think it's okay because daddy said he's our uncle. this is about setting boundaries as i see it here. this mom is worried about throwing around a special distinction of the term uncle to men who are friends of the father. it's complicated because the parents report together and the mom is not necessarily around when her daughters are told to
9:38am
address the men as uncle. she may not know the gentlemen. also, the problem here, calling them uncle gives the girls a sense that these men, virtual strangers to the girls, can be trusted like a family member. so, mom, you asked me what i thought about it. i think if this bothers you and clearly it does, you have to have that talk with your ex, explain your fears and your concerns. okay, you might be in for a defensive reaction because he might look at this like you're attacking this judgement and the character of his buddies. hey, parents have to make tough decisions and if your gut is telling you something, you have to go with it, your girls are worth the fight. >> that is tough, though. we do this in our own home. my special friends are called aunt. >> right. >> and i don't have any necessary uncles, you know, and mark takes care of that, i know
9:39am
them very well. >> they're friends. >>, and you know, we know them together and i understand this mom's point here. >> i think you're right on with the advice. it's about the kids. you have to focus on the kids. >> a boundary. >> right. >> and what they are and i think in this case, she make good points. >> right. >> and i asked sidney. she said if you said this was uncle or aunt, i would trust them more and i feel like you trust them enough to call me that. send the question to ask allison, find the lisping on www.myfoxdc.com. coming up, she's an accuse -- link on www.myfoxdc.com. coming up, an accused russian spy and what she hopes to do in her home country of russia. and there could be a big honor in the works for the civil rights pioneer, dr. dorothyhood. we're going to tell you -- did dorothy hyde. what is planned to remember the influential woman.
